Fortress sights in Göteborg
- Sort by:
At the mouth of the Göta älv, squat red Elfsborgs Fortress has had an interesting history. It was built in the 17th century to defend the young city from Danish attack, and saw action again in the early 18th century during the Great Nordic War. Visitors can see the church built for Karl XII's troops, and the dungeons for when they stepped out-of-line.
